My First Loop

Let’s start with building the easiest loop of all: the Counting Loop.

The Counting Loop repeats a series of actions a fixed number of times. The series of actions is the execution of the nodes contained in the loop body, which are located between its loop start and loop end node. This loop is the equivalent to a “for” cycle in most programming languages.

The generic Loop End node is the most common way to close a loop block. However, many more loop end nodes are available, each one closing the loop and outputting the results in a slightly different way. The video below, shows some of the end lopping options available beyond the Loop End node.

Looping is a special task inside a workflow and as such relies on special execution commands. If you right-click a loop end node, you will see a number of additional commands now active that are usually not active for other nodes. The video below describes what these extra commands are for and how to use them best.
